A 25 year-old woman is dead and her
52 year-old mother is under arrest for her death after the
daughter is shot at the front door.
On 11-25-13 at approximately 8:45 p.m., Ruby Bing (daughter)
(DOB:07/07/1988, 1622 HighPoint Ct, Winter Haven) went to
the home of her mother, located at 481 18th Street SE,

The mother, Adele Bing (DOB:07/23/1961) was inside the

treated for injuries to his head after Adele Bing hit him
with a gun.
Hospital officials contacted the Winter Haven Police

hospital, a call came in about a shooting at the same 18th
St., SE address.
Ruby Bing was at the door of her mother's residence holding
her 4 month-old baby while knocking on the door. Adele Bing
was still upset about the argument between her and Lane when
her daughter knocked on the door. Adele Bing thought the
person knocking was Lane (boyfriend).
Adele Bing armed herself with a baseball bat and a handgun.
As she opened the door a shot was fired, hitting her
daughter in the upper chest. The 4 month-old was not
injured. Ruby Bing died at the scene.
Adele Bing was arrested and charged with Second Degree
Murder (F-1) and Child Abuse Without Great Bodily Harm
